Without instilling kids with an early affection for athletics, pick-up games would become a thing of the past and little league teams would be populated solely by left fielders. Cultivate a competitive spirit with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get admission to Saturday Night Youth Sports Camp at The Tennis Club at Springhurst and Top Gun Academy (a $30 value). Camps are held every Saturday night from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The Springhurst location's camps meet from October 15–December 3, and the Top Gun location's camps meet from January 7–February 25, 2012.
Each of The Tennis Club at Springhurst and Top Gun Academy's weekly Youth Sports Camps dedicates four hours to molding up-and-comers into proficient athletes by hosting a variety of games in an upbeat, supportive environment. Parents can enjoy a night out as kids ages 5–14 take their pick of sports––tennis, volleyball, basketball, field hockey, and football––before expending excess energy on perfecting their games instead of spinning in circles or eating their siblings' homework. Complimentary comestibles and refreshments energize pintsize players as a squad of trained supervisors guides them from one exhilarating athletic venture to the next.
The Tennis Club at Springhurst
The Tennis Club at Springhurst places top-notch instructors at the helm of both of its professional-level facilities, where programs, camps, and classes help players of all ages develop their skills. Opened in 1998, the multifaceted Springhurst location combines 10 indoor tennis courts with areas for golf, field hockey, volleyball, and basketball to form a one-stop training haven. The academy’s other location, Top Gun Academy, has grown to include 13 outdoor tennis courts and a 18,000-square-foot indoor turf field. Dually dedicated to excellence in sports, both facilities offer programs that have helped produce college-level players and championship teams.
